    Everything in this "novel" seems ethically ambiguous and/or romantically fantastical

    Fantastic

    Some of the most interesting and medically detailed stories I have ever encountered. The only downside is there are not enough of them.

    Sucks

    Stilted dialog, awkward prose, clumsy storytelling. Some good ideas, perhaps, but they need a writer to bring them to life, not whatever this guy is. Basic grammar and sentence structure is lacking, sorry.

    Strange gender bender scifi

    Very odd gender bender scifi. Not that great. Interesting at first but by the third story, no longer that interested. Did not finish whole book.

    -Interesting-

    Weird but interesting. Kinda, maybe, adultish. Nonetheless, if you like sci-fi and can handle a little gore, this is for you.
